'The Beulah Show' was the first TV series to feature an African American woman in the lead role. This episode is called "The Waltz". The show starred Hattie McDaniel. It's commonly believed that most episodes of this show were destroyed. The show was controversial for claims of "racial stereotyping", though to be honest, I could think of plenty of shows that did the same thing years later without complaint.

Note: "Stereotypes abound in sitcom TV. This early BW program has a cast of stereotypes- every character in the script is some version of a vapid 'dangling conversation' persona, either by race, role or sex." (edit)

Note: "This cameo of the film by Lewin shows Dorian as an actor who builds an auto-portrait over a traditional canvas image of himself. His medium is his life, his deeds, all of which are transferred by some magic imaginary power onto the canvas. He remains young and beautiful, the canvas becomes monstrous. The original monstrous painting in this film is permanently on view at the Art Institute of Chicago." (edit)
